Results Achladokampos Hillclimb 2017

The fourth round of the Greek Hillclimb Championship was the Achladokampos Hillclimb. Halfway during the second race the rain came pouring down. This had a significant effect on the raceresults, especially in Group A.

Leonidas Kyrkos was the final driver to compete on a completely dry track. For that reason the Ford Escort WRC pilot was the fastest driver of the weekend and the Group A winner. Michalis Euthymiou and Dimitris Velios remained reasonably close to the winner. Championship leader Sakis Loris on the other had to drive in the rain and fell way down the order. Spyros Vorgias was the fastest -2000 car.

In Group N the four 4-wheel-drive cars finished 1-2-3-4 with Stamatis Katsimis on top. As usual the most exciting battle took place in class N2. Here Konstantinos Tasoulas took class victory with a lead of just .08 seconds over Vasilis Rekkas.

In Group E Panagiotis Euthymiou is giving Georgos Kechagias a real challenge. At Achladokampos Euthymiou was by far the quicker of the two and took group victory. Marios Iliopoulos was the only driver in Group FS who could hold his own in the rain. The same can be said of Georgios Katsaros in the historics.

Results Korylovo Hillclimb (Drama) 2017

Apart from the Greek Hillclimb Championship event at Achladokampos there was another major hillclimb in Greece this weekend. The Korylovo Hillclimb near Drama was a round of the Greek Hillclimb Cup North. The event almost doubled its entry compared to last year. Among the 36 entries were a few guest drivers from Bulgaria.

The first of the two races faced the most difficult track conditions. It was therefore surprising that Bulgarian Julian Teliyski immediately set the fastest time. When conditions improved for the second race, Konstantinos Lazaridis set fastest time of the day. The final results were however decided on the combined times which allowed Teliyski to take victory. Dimitros Katsaros had a difficult first race as evidenced by his second race which was 15 seconds quicker! Katsaros secured third place with this second effort. Fourth was for Ioannis Konstantinidis, the best of the combined -2000 class. Fifth was for another Bulgarian, Stefan Stoev. The Honda Civic pilot was also declared the best non-turbo FS car. Konstantinos Koutsodimos was the winner of the combined -1600 class and sixth overall.
